Backstage at the Milly Spring 2010 runway show, I had the chance to talk to Roxanne Valinoti from Creative Nail Design, Hair Stylist Kevin Ryan, and Romy Soleimani for Mac Cosmetics, about what they do best: creative beautiful looks!
Roxanne Valinoti is one of the gracious, friendly faces I’m always happy to see backstage at a runway show during Fashion Week. Roxanne is a lead nail stylist with Creative Nail Design, in charge of CND’s nail team for Fashion Week. According to Roxanne, Creative Nail Design is moving towards layering colors, playing with texture, and using their new, Effects, both for runway shows and for the home consumer, instead of custom blending one specific color for a designer as in season’s past. This allows anyone to take a Creative Nail Design “recipe” and re-create it using the same colors from the company’s line of color nail polishes and Effects as the pros use, backstage. Roxanne explained that the company will be choosing one signature color look and suggesting it for each season as well. So you can play with the colors yourself, of go with “the Look” for the season–or both! For Spring 2010, the look is a bubblegum pink called “Sweet Tart,” with a layer of sparkling shimmer called ‘Sugar Sparkle.” A new trend is to use a matte top coat instead of a shiny one. “Shiny black nail polish, for example, feels very classic, but when you use a matte top coat it gets more punk-ish and young, she explained.
The glowing but polished bronze face was created for Milly Spring 2010 makeup artist Romy Soliemani and the MAC Pro Team. Since the collection really did have quite a bit of color, Soliemani created a smoky eye and bronzed, nude skin. The makeup look was a nod to the 80s, and the 60’s. Soleimani explains it it to me and you, in this video shot backstage at the Bryant Park Tents.
The always delightful hair guru, Kevin Ryan for R-Sessions created the perfectly placed, perky, big-bowed ponytail. In this video I took backstage in the Bryant Park Tents, he explains the ponytail look for the Milly Show, and opines on whether it’s right for you:
One of the products Kevin used is his own invention called Pin-Up Girl $21.99 . When I spoke to him last fashion week, this easy to use kit comes in blonde, brown and black. It was still in the works when I spoke to hin last fashion week. But now, it’s available and it gives you everything you need to create a sophisticated and sexy UpDos. You can get it on the R-Sessions Web Site
This look was a perfect compliment to the young-at-heart, girly clothes on the runway. Kevin Ryan from R-Sessions said the look was really just for young girls, playful and sweet, and ready for fun!”
